Amber Rose apologises to Julianne Hough
Amber Rose has apologised to Julianne Hough for accusing her of "body shaming her".
The 32-year-old model claimed last week that she felt the judge was criticising her figure when she said she felt "uncomfortable" watching Amber's salsa on 'Dancing with the Stars', but on Monday (03.10.16) evening's show she said sorry to the dancer for misunderstanding her comments.
She said: "When you said ['I feel a little uncomfortable'], I felt very embarrassed. And I felt like you weren't talking about my dance. But if I misunderstood, then I apologise.
"And I'm a very positive person. I don't like to argue or bicker or make things weird.
"So, moving forward, I just want complete positive energy and just to have fun."
Before evaluating Amber and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy's dance, Julianne also addressed the incident and insisted one of the things she most loves about dancing is how universal it is.
She said: "I would like to say one thing, also. The thing I love so much about dance is that it's a universal platform for people to express themselves.
"Any person--whether that is age, height, body shape, ethnicity or sexual orientation--it is something that people can express themselves to do.
"And for me, I am a huge supporter of that and that alone and as a judge, I'm here to solely judge you and everyone in this competition for only the dancing. I want you to know that."
A studio insider also told E! News that the pair proved their differences were behind them during a commercial break as they shared a hug and a "very cute moment".
In the original comments, Amber - who has lost around 10lbs since being partnered with Maksim - said there was no difference between her and the "beautiful professional dancers", but that Julianne, 28, felt uncomfortable with Amber's weight.
She said: "They did the commentary, and I, it was a point in the dance where I had to lift my leg up and Maks dipped me & [Julianne] said, 'Oh, I'm uncomfortable,' and instantly I felt, I did feel body shamed.
"You know, all the beautiful professional dancers that are on 'Dancing with the Stars', I mean they dress very sexy and they do the splits and they grind up on these guys and they look absolutely stunning and get a standing ovation. And me, and my body, my hips, my ass, my breasts made her uncomfortable."
